Fran Jolson is thrilled to be back home in Greenville. Fran attended Riverside High School and is a graduate of Wake Forest University.
After finishing her undergraduate studies, Fran worked in Chicago for the Western Golf Association and Evans Scholars Program as an event coordinator for fundraising events.
Her path to acupuncture and wellness has been a very personal journey. While in Chicago, Fran struggled with women’s health and digestive issues.
Like many patients, she tried many different traditional medical providers, seeking relief from her conditions – but nothing was working. Finally, Fran decided to take an alternative approach. She began acupuncture treatments, changed her diet and lifestyle – and finally saw results.
When she realized the power of holistic, alternative medicine, she was inspired to enroll at National University of Health Sciences (NUHS) to pursue the study of acupuncture, so she could help other people realize the same benefits she has experienced herself.
In 2016, Fran graduated as valedictorian with a Masters of Science in acupuncture (M.S.Ac.). She has also completed board examinations and holds certification from the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
She is a Licensed Acupuncturist (L.Ac.) in the state of South Carolina.
Fran has completed 420 hours in her clinical acupuncture internship at NUHS, as well as 200 hours in the Pain Clinic at John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital in downtown Chicago.
She has a passion for treating digestive issues and anxiety disorders and has accrued many continuing education hours in those fields. Fran’s practice also includes treatments for pain management, headaches and migraines, fertility issues, stress, men’s health, psycho-emotional disorders, addictions, and more.
Fran uses traditional acupuncture, cupping, acupressure and moxibustion. Along with East Asian Medicine therapies, she also incorporates a variety of Western techniques into her patient care. Fran believes in educating and empowering her patients to take charge of their own health and wellness beyond the treatment rooms.
In her free time, you can find Fran chasing after her sons, Miles and Max, spending time with her husband and their large and constantly growing family. She also loves trying new fitness classes around town, watching movies, and reading. Fran is excited to serve the Upstate community.
